Cleaning blindsCleaning your blinds can be a pain, but it's a necessity to ensure that your place stays nice and clean. Now that the sun is out and the icky weather might be behind us, opening up our windows is a great change of pace. But who wants to see dust and dirt on your blinds? Here are few ways that you can clean your blinds in apartments in Chico and Redding California!


When you are done vacuuming your carpet, use one of those fancy attachments on the hose and take it to your blinds. Vacuum your blinds from side to side, then vacuum them from top to bottom. This will help you get all of the dust and dirt that easily collects to the plastic. Be careful with the pressure that you put on the blinds because they can easily bend and break.

Disinfecting Wipes

If you are looking for a deep down clean and don’t mind spending a little bit more time on cleaning your blinds, then grab the disinfecting wipes. You will use these to gently wipe the dust off of each slat. With this method, you will go from side to side. Be gentle with your pressure to prevent bending and breaking.

Cloth and Solution

Don’t want to spend money on disinfecting wipes? Then grab a few rags, white vinegar and water. In a bowl put equal parts white vinegar and water. Grab a rag and get it damp with the solution. Wipe down each slat gently like above. Make sure that you aren’t leaving cloth particles behind on the blinds. If you do find remnants of the cloth on the blinds when you are done, then wait until the solution is dry and take a clean duster to the blinds. You'll end up gently dusting off the cloth.

Residents shouldn’t wait to clean their blinds until they move out of apartments in Chico California. Blinds should be cleaned periodically throughout the year. For other places that should be cleaned periodically throughout the year, download this Deep Cleaning Checklist!
